Storyline

In a ravaged post-apocalyptic Earth of a distant future, an animated rag doll struggles to survive against the perils and the creatures of a monstrous world. To be more specific, the relentless Cat Beast, a towering and murderous automaton, is decimating 9's clan, and pretty soon, there will be no one left. The robot is after their proud souls and it is unstoppable. Is this the end of 9's people? Written by Nick Riganas

This short version of the now feature 9 didn't satisfy me much so I hope the longer version was better
15 September 2009 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Just watched this-Shane Acker's original short version of the now released feature version of 9. The title character is-as many commentators have mentioned-a rag doll who's on the run from a large creature that just killed a fellow worker with some light bulb gadget. The computer animation is pretty exciting with the chase and I can see why it was nominated for an Academy Award. But I guess because it was so short and there weren't too many details of why all this was happening made me a little unsatisfied with this animated short. In other words, I wanted this to be a little longer. So it's with that being said that I hope the feature version of 9 becomes a much more enjoyable experience than what I saw here...
